This section briefly examines U.S.-China-Taiwan relations during Ronald Reagan’s tenure in the White House, a period of revision for both American conservatism and U.S. China policy. Although the working relationship that Washington and Beijing reached may have been a logical step, die-hards like Barry Goldwater still demanded reassurances for Taiwan. The 1980s were the first time the right was divided against itself on China, illustrating the divide between the original New Right and Reagan’s brand of conservatism. After summarizing the historical stakes of preceding chapters, the conclusion ends with a glance at the roles China played during the 2012 elections.

Keywords:   Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater, normalization, U.S Taiwan relations, U.S China relations
